    Can mould spread throughout a home even if there isn’t a water leakage issue? Mould is still spreading in different rooms of the house. It all started with a big leak several years ago but that issue was fixed and I don’t see any other signs of leakage. So is it possible that some of the mould simply survived the initial effort to kill it off and has spread from there even without a renewed problem with water leaking? I know that moisture can cause the problem too. How can I tell if moisture/humidity levels are too high in my home? And how can I rule out the possibility that a new water leak is helping the mould to spread again?

    Question for any proper plumbers. Daughters loft tank overflow occasionally runs. I have replaced the ball valve & set it well below the overflow. However we notice that every so often it still overflows. I noticed it when i ran hot & cold in kitchen to clean a couple of rollers & today it happened when she ran a bath. Any ideas? Some sort of back flow? Its not all the time. TIA for any ideas / answers.

    I have heard that it’s essential to use lead-free solder to join copper pipes together? Why is this the case?

    There is a banging sound coming from the pipes in my house. It happens often enough. What could be causing this issue? Is it something that ought to be fixed or is it just an annoyance that is doing no real damage? If it needs to be fixed, how much might it cost?

    We've been having problems with what I assume is our boiler. When we use the shower we can hear the pipes underneath rattling really loudly and a chugging and propeller type noise that sounds like it’s hitting something. The noise used to be much more subtle and only came on when we had the heater on, I think this is also affecting our water pressure in the shower. The problem has gotten worse over the past few months. What could it be?

    Water is leaking through my bathroom extractor fan. Can I fix this by myself and if so, what are the steps involved?

    I am based in Manchester and I’d like to have a leaky shower fixed. It’s a mixer shower and it appears that the leak is not major or with the pipes, that is. The leak seems to be an issue with the shower itself. I’d like to hire a plumber to fix this problem. How much might this cost? Does it depend on what type of issue is present? How long might the job take to fix it? Also, should I hire a plumber to come out and take a look first?

    How much plumbers charge on an hourly and daily basis in London? Do prices vary much throughout the city or are most quotes in around the same amount?

    There is water leaking out my toilet. It seems to be dripping out shortly after being flushed. How can I find out what exactly the issue is? And what can I do to fix it? Will I need to hire a plumber or is this the sort of work that can be done DIY?

    Hi, I'm looking for quotes for dishwasher installation. The set-up is simple I think: freestanding unit, within 1m of sink (there's a narrow under-counter cupboard in between) and with an electrical socket within easy reach, but there hasn't been a dishwasher there before (area under the counter where the dishwasher will go is clear -- it's just an empty space currently). I'm in Nottingham, UK. Grateful for any advice.
